What You Will Like

The F-150 might be the most important vehicle made by Ford. It continues to be one of their top-selling vehicles, encouraging Ford to put their best foot forward with the 2016 model. The F-150 competes with the Ram, the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra 1500, among others, in the full-sized truck category. Ford is clearly pushing its new technology and new ideas with the F-150, offering plenty of options not available anywhere else in this class, such as a 360-degree camera and integrated loading ramps stowed in the pickup bed. A smaller, more fuel efficient EcoBoost engine is also available, which should further improve fuel economy while providing the same kind of horsepower that would normally be delivered by mid-grade V8 engines. At the same time, the F-150 continues to excel at traditional truck tasks, with a best in class towing capacity of 12,200 pounds when properly equipped.

What's New For 2016

The Ford F-150 was completely redesigned for 2015, so for 2016 it receives only minor updates. Among the changes, a Pro Trailer Backup Assist greatly aids drivers of all skill levels in maneuvering a trailer while in reverse. Users simply turn a knob left or right to indicate desired direction and the F-150 adjusts its steering and speed to comply. Ford's latest SYNC 3 infotainment system replaces MyFord Touch as a more intuitive option for users. F-150s equipped with the 5.0L V8 offer a new option for running on propane or compressed natural gas, while new special edition packages are available on XLT and Lariat trims. Finally, a new Limited trim tops the range and packages goodies like 22-inch wheels and several convenience options.

Introduction

Ford went radically lean when it redesigned the Ford F-150 for 2015, giving its ever-popular full-size pickup an aluminum-intensive body. Visual appearance didn’t change much, considering the dramatic re-skinning. Though the big pickup remains upright in profile, the F-150 lost 500 pounds or more.

For 2016, Ford F-150 gets a new SYNC 3 infotainment to replace the much-criticized MyFordTouch. Formerly a separate model, the off-road-focused FX4 is now an option package. Otherwise, little has changed for 2016.

The F-150 has been the top-selling vehicle in the U.S. for ages, up against its perennial rivals: Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, plus Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan.

Nothing appears to have been diminished by going light, and Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is especially impressive. However, some voice concern about the cost of repairing the aluminum body.

In the aluminum generation, Ford is focusing on turbocharged EcoBoost engines. One V8 remains, plus three V6 engines (two of them twin-turbo). Making 283 horsepower, the basic 3.5-liter V6 permits towing up to 7,600 pounds. The optional 2.7-liter turbo V6 produces 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque, for an 8,500-pound towing capacity.

Stepping up a big notch, a 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6, eking out 420 pound-feet, raises the peak towing figure to 12,200 pounds. Ford’s familiar 5.0-liter V8 delivers 385 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque.

All engines mate with a 6-speed automatic transmission. F-150 pickups come with either rear-drive or four-wheel drive.

Nearly all F-150 buyers opt for a SuperCab or a SuperCrew, with four full-size front-hinged doors. Regular-cab models remain, but are mainly aimed at fleet duty.

Plenty of safety technology is available, including a second-row inflatable seatbelt and Curve Control for braking assistance. An F-150 can be equipped with blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. A lane-keeping system nudges the truck back into its lane when sensors detect crossing of the double-yellow line. New optional Pro Trailer Backup Assist simplifies backing into a driveway or boat launch. That system performs the actual steering.

Ford’s Super Crew earned a five-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). An optional camera set provides a 360-degree view around the truck, helpful for parking or easing into a garage.

Lineup

The 2016 Ford F-150 lineup has been scaled down to XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum.

F-150 XL is available with any cargo bed or cab, and the base V6 is available for SuperCrew. Standard equipment includes 17-inch wheels, manual windows and locks, AM/FM stereo, vinyl floor, manual air conditioning, and tilt/telescopic steering wheel. F-150 XLT adds CD player, cruise control, power windows and locks, cloth front seats, and SYNC.

F-150 Lariat comes with turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 or 5.0-liter V8 engine. Standard are leather-trimmed and heated front seats, satellite radio, rearview camera, pushbutton start, power-adjustable pedals.

F-150 King Ranch is Crew Cab only, with a shorter bed and V8, or with 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 optional. Features posh leather, heated/cooled front seats, inflatable rear seatbelts, Sony audio, navigation, rear parking sensors, and remote tailgate release.

Platinum edition has LED headlights, blind-spot monitors, power running boards, remote start, remote tailgate release, rear parking sensors, and 20-inch wheels.

Walkaround

When the F-150 was redesigned for 2015, Ford downplayed the dramatic aluminum body by retaining an angular look and deleting the prior F-150’s curves. The body and cargo bed are made of aluminum panels glued and riveted together. All that aluminum sits atop a ladder frame, made mostly of high-strength steel.

Led by its tall grille and faired-back headlights, the F-150 continues to convey a definitively tough-truck character. Rectangular headlight inserts recall early F-Series pickups. A beveled hood helps send air across the roof.

SuperCab and SuperCrew body styles come with a five-foot-six, six-foot-six, or eight-foot cargo bed. Helpful features are available, led by loading ramps that lock into bedsides, and a BoxLink system to divide and anchor cargo, and a slide-out tailgate.

Interior

Roomy up front, the F-150 benefits from two extra inches of width compared to previous models. Regular-cab pickups provide scant space behind the front seats. SuperCabs are basically for younger folks; but rear seats flip up against the back wall, yielding helpful cargo storage space on the flat floor. Legroom is ample and the recline is satisfying in the back seat of a SuperCrew, but seat cushions are a bit low.

In most versions, a wide, deep console sits between the front seats. It’s big enough to hold a laptop. More hard buttons than in past F-Series pickups operate the F-150’s infotainment functions. Controls seem intended for drivers with big hands, which makes sense for a practical pickup. Platinum models can now have genuine wood trim.

Driving Impressions

Ride quality and handling prowess haven’t changed substantially with the new aluminum body, but the reduced weight clearly helps isolation from the road surface.

F-150 occupants can expect excellent ride comfort and a substantial feel. A 2016 F-150 Platinum model we drove smoothed out bumpy neighborhood roads, delivering a ride that Super Duty owners can only dream about. Electric power steering is quick and light, handily complementing this truck’s admirable road manners.

A V6 F-150 is quiet while cruising. One oddity: simulated V8 noise is sent into the cab, to satisfy owners who simply can’t bear to be without the sound of eight cylinders.

Despite its traditional separate body, an F-150 exhibits excellent composure. In fact, even though an F-150 looks tough, it’s among the best-handling big pickups. Ride control suggests a capable sedan, at least when rolling at moderate speeds. Pushed harder, not quite so much.

The 2.7-liter V6 engine works well with Ford’s 6-speed automatic. Acceleration is energetic and smooth, the turbocharger heard faintly under acceleration. Ford’s Stop/Start setup is among the best, practically seamless when it’s time for the engine to restart. EPA-estimated fuel economy is a comparatively thrifty 19/26 mpg City/Highway (22 mpg Combined) with that engine and two-wheel drive.

Quite a difference from the V8 version, EPA-estimated at only 15/21 mpg.

Summary

Five trims, three body styles, three bed lengths, four engines. Plus a host of available options give the Ford F-150 a lot to choose from. Prudent purchasing suggests considering one of the lesser trim levels, such as an XLT or Lariat, since a King Ranch and Platinum can easily top $60,000. In our view, the 2.7-liter twin-turbo is worth the additional cost.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
